No, P-39 only on Kuban, P-40 on Moscow, Stalingrad, and Kuban.

Historical campaigns are limited as LukeFF wrote above, but you can QMB any plane on any map, and multiplayer servers allow their own mix, many ahistorical.

Question along the same lines, will the hurricane be usable in BoN Career, I've read many sources that state the MkII was used during D.Day and other operations.

As part of the package almost surely not, although I'm just guessing. As part of a later historical campaign maybe?

It was only used as a postal aircraft, as far as I'm aware

No, only for Moscow and Stalingrad.

There were Hurricane's around but I can't find any combat sorties during the Battle of Normandy timeframe. They were surely only used for second line duties.

Delivering beer perhaps?

Other than that it had been superseded by the Typhoon and Tempest.

I guess we wait for a BoB expansion one day, even with ClOD maybe one day in the far future it will come, maybe BoF too.

For me the sim shines with the early war aircraft, I love the i16, E7 and early Spits. More of this kind of thing please :)

One nice thing about the Normandy map is that it represents a static front that existed for four years.  As long as you have the planes you can do the time period on that map.  So while there would be no Hurricanes in the west in mid 1944 they were there before that time.

 

I am going extend the western front back to 1941 once BoN drops.  We will have enough planes to do it - not perfectly but well enough to be fun.  Spit V against FW190 A3, transitioning to Spit IX against FW190 A5, add in the P47 razorbacks and later the P51 B/C models.  Mosquito raids. That's three years of action before anybody even hits the beaches.

As i remember from Pierre Closterman book, Hurricans are used in Normandy for ground attack (with rockets )... but they were to heavy to flying- and easy prey for german AAA.

You can use the P-40 on every map, cause it is a collector plane so you can buy BON and BOBP and fly it there. But as previously said, there is no place for it in any campaign.

I expect a BOB player made campaign after BON is released some day...

We have the Spitfire Mk V, E7 and F2 and the early A3 and later the Hurricane for that setup

Not in 1944.

That may have happened as late as early 1943 but not after that. I remember that chapter and its far earlier in the war.

 

Typhoons and Mustangs replaced the Hurricane's in that role.

Agree, it was mission from 20.12.1943. 👍

 

That's still later than I though for Hurricanes.  Been many years since I read that book.  Kind of a good ting for the game as it makes the Hurri II a useful plane for a long time.
